I would like to let all my clients, current and future, that as of January 5th, 2018, standard session fees will be increasing from $125.00 to $200.00. This price change comes from rising overhead costs, the soon purchase of better equipment and printed products, and the addition of each session receiving a 8x10 print of their choosing.
I am hoping with this price increase, I can give you better end products through higher quality images, high end quality, mounted prints, and a wider range of printed products, including canvases and books.
Images will now be printed on deep matte photographic paper, mounted to provide rigidity, heavier weight, and durability.
I hope that I am able to provide you with better service, quicker turn around times, and hopefully spring a increase in printed products to proudly display in your homes.
I would love to hear your feedback about this change, and I have updated the pricing lists and have displayed all of the coming options for printed products under the "Info" tab.
Also, if there are any products that you would like me to look into having, please let me know! I would love to improve and give you what you want!
In the end, this comes from a need and desire to give you, my fantastic clients, more!
(This adjustment will not effect any currently purchased gift certificates, wedding packages, or calendar sessions)
This week I have had the joy of borrowing this hand crafted violin to photograph it. This is handmade by Lethbridge Musical Instruments. It features an Engelmann spruce top, sugar maple back, neck, and ribs, macassar ebony fingerboard and fittings, and black willow corner blocks and bass bar. As always, it's got a layer of his quartz-based ground coat, but this one received a specially-processed oil varnish which sets it (and its one-piece back) apart from anything he has done before. Also worth noting: this violin hasn't seen a single powertool over the course of its production. I couldn't resist the opportunity to get some product images of it, and I am so grateful to know some of the people I do. Thank you Taylor for the chance, and for the craftsmanship you provide.

So for the past few years, I have been collecting vintage cameras. Some are older than others, and some are more interesting. I am still just starting this adventure into collecting them, learning so much history along the way. It is so fascinating to learn how they are made, how they work, all the different film/paper types, and so much more. I hope to continue being able to learn and grow my collection as the years go on, and to be able to share what I've learned about them with others.
I hope you enjoy learning about them as much as I do!
But for now, here are a small selection of them, and I will post more as I get more photos finished of the rest.
I just realized now that I never published this post and it's been sitting in my drafts. Time flies when your having fun!
During the day, I have been shooting behind the scenes and products for the Trillium Hunter Jumper Association at Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park.
At night however, Megan and I have turned our hotel room into a studio.
What else would I do anyways!?
Here are some portraits from the corner of the room.
THJA (Trillium Hunter Jumper Association) provided goodie bags this year to exhibitors at the 2014 Championships. Today, I set up shop in a horse trailer and photographed plaques, medals, ribbons, and some goodies.
I would like to share the lovely toques with you that came in the goodie bags.
Thank you to my lovely assistant Megan for also being my lovely model....again!
My brother asked me today to photograph him so he could have a heasdshot for his college ID.
Sound normal enough?
We had some fun and added some furry friends into the mix.
Maybee, Loki, and the furriest of all, Ian.
My vote is on the last one :)
Last week I got the chance to go downtown and shadow a photographer for the day. Teddy Melvin - http://www.teddymelvin.com - took me on and it was great! It was awesome to see how other photographers work, and what kind of client base different types of photography can have. He's a great guy, and I'd love to go back and work wih him again.
This was one of the images he took of me while we were working together.
Here's Blair! As I mentioned before, it was fantastic to work with him.
And yes- the fire is real, and shot in camera, with him, all at the same time.
This is basically how it looked directly in camera, i only did some minor retouching, and some sharpening to achieve this. I used Speedotron lighting equipment, a Hassleblad H3D camera and 120mm lens
Initially, we had planned to do a bottle smashing theme for this project.
But Blair and I both wanted to do a flame, and we managed to get it in at the end of the day.
Here are some behind the scenes of the studio shoot (during practice bottle drops).
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
PS. Please don't judge my rain boots- its slushy outside.
I also had three assistants with me -
Nirvanie ( http://nirvaniesrikishun-photography.tumblr.com ) - who captured these lovely BTS shots,
Kristi ( http://www.kristirexphotography.com/index.html ) - who is running the Phocus capture for me,
and Tammy, Blair's lovely wife, who got the honours of dropping the glass over her hubby's head!
